They also made soups and stews and all sorts of good things that don't happen anymore. We had a short little Dutch lady as the lunch lady for a while who made the most delicious split pea soup. But that's beside the point.

If you're looking for a spy novel with no swearing, naked scenes, or gore, this is a great one. I found it refreshing to read an intrigue story that could make a PG movie and still be grown-up and fun. Jordan does a great job keeping the suspense goi...more

Another fun read! I love Frances Pauli's books and this one is another great story. If you like dimension hopping exterminators, give this one a try. It's got just the right balance of romance and adventure and cool alien bugs.
